Daily Christmas Devotional

I wanted to do something special this Christmas to help my little family remember why we celebrate Christmas, and to keep Christ as the focus of our celebrations this year. This Daily Christmas Devotional is my solution. I typed up a list with a scripture and a song for each day in December leading up to Christmas. All but two of these songs can be downloaded free of charge from
